The media has made a bit of a flurry around the idea, but the research seems to come from a reputable source - Washington University.

The original article from Washington University is online at: http://news.wustl.edu/news/Pages/25061.aspx and the scientific paper is at: http://www.intmedpress.com/journals/avt/abstract.cfm?id=2346&pid=88

I think this is kind of funny, in a way.  Rigorous scientific study has repeatedly tried and failed for years to strongly support the claims of all the dozens and dozens of different problems apitherapy fans insist bee venom can cure; and yet, out of left field there's now some fairly solid evidence that bee venom can do something that as far as I know apitherapy fans have never claimed it could do.  Color me amused.

Hope research into this new find continues.

I'm still not ready to turn into a gay Hatian drug user until they have the kinks worked out.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
